World turned upside down for me: Sonali Bendre opens up about cancer

Sonali Bendre was detected with high-grade cancer the last year and she had to go to New York for treatment. Now, the actress is back to India and has been sharing her motivational story to us all.

Recently in an event, she opened up about how important the early detection of the cancer is.

“Early detection (of cancer) is most important. Right now the disease is less scary the treatment is actually more frightening and painful. If it were detected early, the cost of treatment would have been less. It would also have been a lesser painful treatment,” she said.

Sonali said, “I have endorsed every hair product in my career. Looks have been my bread, butter, and jam. Looks are important in our society. But, considering that that was the career, it has been scary. The world as I know it turned upside down or was no more there. And when I came to know that I have cancer, I got my team together and told them about it.”

She added, “I told them that I have a disease. As a brand, I endorse healthy products and a certain way of looks. I told them my brand was over. I told them that I was going for this treatment and I don’t know where this goes. They told me that we are in it with you and they have been with me wonderfully.”
